Wedding on the 17th St. Bridge

I photographed a wedding between Ashley Tuitt and Natalie Jamison on the 17th St. bridge in Midtown for the Midtown Patch newspaper on Tuesday, August 16, 2011. When Ashley Tuitt was 18 years old he had a vision. He dreamed one night that he was in an embrace with a beautiful woman on a bridge as two lamborghinis passed. Fast forward 13 years and Tuitt meets Natalie Jamison. For the next 10 years Tuitt and Jamison date. On Tuesday the pair exchanged vows on the 17th St. bridge in Midtown to make his dream a reality. Close to 70 friends and family witnessed the event overlooking I-85 and the Atlanta skyline. The couple then drove off in, what else, but a 1974 Lamborghini Countach. These are my favorite images from the ceremony.
